Spread over nearly two hundred acres, the Ooty Golf Course is as pretty as it is thought. Laid by Col. Fane Sewell in 1891, the golf course at an altitude of seven thousand two hundred feet above sea level is a full course with eighteen holes. The altitude causes a bit of problems for golfers from the plains as the ball flight becomes slower as compared to the flight on the plains. Lush green fairways and immaculate greens make this golf course a pleasure to play on. A haven for golfers, the well maintained fairways of this course are lined by pine, oak, fir and eucalyptus trees and are certainly worth a visit. The most amazing and interesting hole to play is the Par 3 fifth which rises over two hundred feet from the tee to the green – an accurate tee off will be required if you wish to make par.
